Welcome to Peter Harrington Books

CHURCHILL, Winston S.

Rare books by Winston Churchill, including first editions, signed first editions, finely bound copies, and handsome sets of his collected works. 

Voted the “Greatest Briton of all” by the British public, Winston Churchill was surely Britain’s sole world-historical figure of the last century. A complex, mercurial character, in his life he played many parts: minor scion of a most noble family, grieving son of a tragic father, soldier for Empire, gadfly correspondent, controversial MP, cabinet minister, voice in the wilderness, strategist, war leader, statesman and Nobel literature laureate.
